PHP Code Samples

The following code samples, which use the Google API Client Library for PHP, are available for the YouTube Reporting API. You can download these code samples from the php folder of the YouTube APIs code sample repository on GitHub.

  1. Create a reporting job (reportTypes.list, jobs.create)
  2. Retrieve reports (jobs.list, jobs.reports.list)

Create a reporting job

This sample demonstrates how to create a reporting job. It calls the reportTypes.list method to retrieve a list of available report types. It then calls the jobs.create method to create a new reporting job.

<?php

/**
 * This sample creates a reporting job by:
 *
 * 1. Listing the available report types using the "reportTypes.list" method.
 * 2. Creating a reporting job using the "jobs.create" method.

Retrieve reports

This sample demonstrates how to retrieve reports created by a specific job. It calls the jobs.list method to retrieve reporting jobs. It then calls the reports.list method with the jobId parameter set to a specific job ID to retrieve reports created by that job. Finally, the sample prints out the download URL for each report.

/**
 * This sample supports the following use cases:

 * 2. Retrieving list of downloadable reports for a particular job:
 *    Ex: php retrieve_reports.php  --contentOwner=="CONTENT_OWNER_ID" --jobId="JOB_ID"
 * 3. Download a report:
 *    Ex: php retrieve_reports.php  --contentOwner=="CONTENT_OWNER_ID" --downloadUrl="DOWNLOAD_URL" --outputFile="report.txt"
